The inverse convertor (RTF to HTML) also exists : Martha
Nowadays, text processing software usually manage HTML format, but this software can still be useful.
All HTML markers are not handled, but most of them (including HTML 3 intructions) are. The first purpose of this program is to get a word processing formatted text at the end, with all the text but not necessarily all the formats.

From DOS, you can specify the name of the input file on the command line, like ishtar.exe my_file.htm or no file name at all. In the latter case, it will be asked to you on line.
The program can be launched from windows too of course (and opens a DOS window). In this case, if you directly click on the name ishtar.exe in the file manager window, it will have no argument and will then ask you the name of the input file. Otherwise, you can drag the input file with the mouse and put it over the name ishtar.com in the file manager window. It will launch the program with that file as an input.
If the input file is FILENAME.ext (whatever "ext" may be), the output file will be FILENAME.RTF. Of course, if the input file already has the extension .RTF, there will be a problem... In this case, you will be asked a filename for the output file. This output file will be located in the same directory as the input file.
If the output file already exists, you will be warned and asked if it can be overwritten or if you want to give the output file another name.
Important information : the program creates a log file named "martha.log" in the directory of the program itself. this file contains information on tags that have not been processed, or syntaxic errors found in the HTML file... But it's in French !
It can be transferred to any third party, or redistributed on internet sites, with the only 2 following restrictions :
I would be pleased to get information on its use and its possible enhancements.
